11-year-old boy urinates all over $36,000 worth of MacBooks

$36,000 worth of Apple MacBooks were urinated on by 11-year-old boy

While this isn't the best-flavored news, it's something worth covering. Have you ever asked yourself, if you were to pee all over your MacBook, would Apple's AppleCare warranty cover it? Could one even pay Apple to service the machines once they had been marked as your territory?

No. Definitely not. Apple sees peed-on MacBooks as a biohazard. Well, it has happened. An 11-year-old has unleashed the power of his bladder upon a Pennsylvanian school's cart full of MacBooks worth over $36,000. PennLive reports:

 

An 11-year-old boy urinated on several MacBook computers on a cart in the Upper Allen Elementary School Wednesday, damaging them beyond repair, according to Upper Allen Twp. police.

 

The loss came to more than $36,000, police said.

 

Police charged the boy with institutional vandalism and criminal mischief and are turning him over to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.

 

The reason it's considered a full loss, is because they can't just be wiped down and turned on. AppleCare won't touch them because they deem them a biohazard. Animal or human, the pee is considered pee and pee is considered a biohazard.
